Lineup and Details for Gobefest
Craft beer, high octane fruit spirits, killer barbecues, suspicious-looking sausages and a cacophony of swirling skirts, stamping feet, lutes, zithers, accordions and Balkan speed-folk-freak-punk can only mean one thing...
This May sees the return of the UK's only free weekend festival to celebrate in riotous colour the arts, culture, food and drink of the fabled-region of Transylvania.
Last year's event in Manchester's central Albert Square, saw 17,000 adventurous revellers put their best foot forward to try out traditional folk dancing and soak up the sounds of a Celtic Transylvanian punk band, shake hands with one of Hungary's biggest pop stars and sample delicacies including the spit-roasted sweet treat chimney cake and lángos (fried dough served with various toppings such as crème frèche and garlic).
This year’s free event also includes a family activity tent running arts and music workshops throughout the weekend, enchanting puppet shows, a makers' craft market, folk dance demonstrations, small-batch craft food sampling and many other musical and culinary delights.
Góbéfest funders include Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants.
